Archive #6 - Izamal

Izamal is known as the yellow city. It is a day trip from Merida but we usually stopped there when we went from Quintana Roo to Yucatan. The Monastery was built on Mayan ruins and has a large enclosed courtyard....all painted yellow. One time when I was photographing in the church we talked with a man who we thought was a caretaker of the Monastery. I asked if I could take his picture, he mumbled something and quickly walked away. We thought that we had offended him but in just a few minutes he returned in his brown robe to pose for me at the door of the chapel.
